The course is aimed at Master’s/ senior undergraduate students. Participating students ideally will have a background in social sciences or humanities.
This course examines the new geopolitical reality in borderland regions created by Russia’s attack on Ukraine and asks the questions, “How do borderlands perceive and respond to the new security situation?” and “What happens after the war ends?” Personal, professional, and official tries with Russia are under immense strain, which is impacting relations negatively. Thus, by looking through multiple lenses at actors such as local non-governmental organisations, media outlets, local environmentalists, and ordinary citizens, the present situation is explored with reference to borderland security and the future paths forward for (renewing) relations once the war ends.
